  • Keeps traffic from getting even worse
  • Stops the transformation of Santa Monica into a high-rise high-rent concrete urban jungle
  • Protects renters by stopping the gentrification of existing neighborhoods and the destruction of existing rent-controlled housing
  • Protects the existing low-rise character of the beach town that we LUVE​
  • ​Preserves our open skies, ocean breezes, and our quality of life
  • Gives voters the power to decide how much development is right for Santa Monica
  • Requires voter approval for Major Development Review Permits
